    Features one of the most awesomely-bad sentences I've ever read: "The perverse nightmare of the sheer volume of it lay atop him longer than the orange ball rode his eyeballs."

    This was a very interesting book. It really grabbed and held my attention! I kept looking for spare moments to pick it up to see what was going to happen next. It is filled with action and suspense. It embraced joy and astonishment at the power of God. It made me feel the awe! It was very realistic, and seemed quite close to Revelations. It is filled with countless surprises, and never failed to keep me guessing and wanting more. It's very clean, though there was some violence. There were a couple parts that I skimmed because it was getting a little too graphic for me. Still, I wouldn't say that the death scenes were dark. They had more of a tone of victory mixed with some timidness, rejoicing mingled with a little fear, longingness for home intertwined with shyness toward the unknown, yet the Christians lived and died in a wonderful hope! No, this book was not dark, it was filled with the light of LIFE and the joy in serving Jesus! I thought this was a very good and enjoyable end times novel, and I hope to be able to read the rest of the series very soon!

    The Great Tribulation continues and the Tribulation Force is now scattered all over the world as they lose their safe house. Various members go on different missions and the group at Petra continues to bask in God's favour and provision. The first half of the book dragged...the same story went on and on and I think the first half of the book only covered 2 days. Then, the second half sped on, flying through different tribulations like darkness, sun flares, etc. I felt like the authors were trying to rush through the plagues/tribulation. The characters were okay...not really much development, but some new characters were introduced just on the surface. I'm still trying to figure out why they have Leah as a character since no one likes her or gets along with her.

    If you're looking for a quick whats-wrong-with-this review, I've got you.I had four problems with this:1. Having all Christian main characters was very, very risky. Give one of them an attribute that's not very godly, and people are going to say "He approves of this in Christians!" Very risky indeed. His solution? Don't take risks. Make every character feel stale and replaceable with the other.2. The plot would get interesting and then God saves the day. That's not a problem, but it kind of cheats in my book. Your character should use his special skill to do something and propel the plot further instead of "This guy's going to be in trouble!"*God saves him* All is better. "In trouble again!" *process repeats*. Though I totally believe God does this in real life, when it comes to book plots, the resolution can't be God saving them every time. God is so infinite that it could be *guys walk three miles to a volcano* *volcano explodes* *instead of running away and learning that God saves them through running away and making it with team work and--* *there happens to be the character's friends nearby and so the character runs there, and they get them out of here but some lava scorched a character but he's not burned because God saves* I'm just saying, God can save without literally shielding the characters from harm or something like that. This seemed like the easy way out.3. Christians rule, non-Christians die and suffer. I'd tell my friends that was the plot. I know that in Revelation a lot of those that didn't accept Christ DO suffer, but from the non-Christian view, no one would want to read this. This series brings glory to God in a "I'm warning you kind of way". Which is great. Please do so. No need to paint this religion with pretty colors. But in order for non-Christians to be warned this way, they'd have to read the book. No non-Christian would though. You'd have to make Christianity seem as forgiving as it really is or the plot would have to be awesome. Which brings me to the plot.4. I can never nap. Unless I'm in a different time zone or I stayed up a majority of the night, Amytiger can not nap. Wish I could. Much easier on me if I could. But napping is boring to me. You lay down in bed, and then what? How do you sleep? Is there a certain thing you think about? Are you not supposed to think? How does this work?! Reading the Remnant, Amytiger was able to take a nap.

    I started reading this series for the fiction appeal and really enjoyed the first 4 or 5 books. I kept reading them because I felt that I needed to finish the story and up until now I have enjoyed them a little. I did not like this one at all though. In between sermons the characters were put in impossible situations that they keep getting out of because they are being protected by God. Things like bullets and missiles shooting through planes no matter what they do doesn't appeal to me because the characters lost their cunning adventurous nature from the previous books. I am very disappointed in the way the authors have decided to wrap up this series, I get the feeling that they just ran out of ideas. Unless you enjoy being preached at for 400 pages I don't recommend this book.

    In general I have been enjoying this series, but this one seemed kind of like the authors just threw it together. In many of the other books, the time was drawn out (perhaps too much in some places), and one book might cover a few days or a few months. This one spans several years and tends to abruptly jump around in time. Every few chapters, you get an update: "Four years into the tribulation..." "Five years into the tribulation..." "Six months later..." and so on.What I like about the Left Behind series is that it makes the book of Revelation easier to understand. I tried reading it, but much of it went in one side of my brain and out the other, mostly because I couldn't make an logical connection between the symbolism and the impact on the earth. Left Behind, even if it isn't the best interpretation of Scripture (and I know it's not), makes it easier to understand. I also somewhat admire the way the authors are able to portray the Antichrist. I wouldn't be able to come up with someone so evil as Nicolae Carpathia. They clearly put a lot of thought behind his character.

    I once found this book at Costco and decided to read it, even though it was the tenth book in the series and I hadn't read the nine books preceding it. It was okay. At the time, I didn't know it was Kirk Cameron's love child. If I had known that, I would have read it with a more critical eye. Still, it wasn't super preachy, so I didn't hate it.

    More of the adventures of the righteous in the days after the rapture. Competently written fantasy that is meant to be taken literally. I couldn't bring myself to force down another of these, so stopped here.

    There were definitely some Sci-fi type qualities to the events of this book, but each was supported in Scripture. so grateful I won't be here for these events, thanks to the grace of God in saving me!

    This again, was another poorly-written work by Jenkins. I will not fault Tim LaHaye for the mistakes of the one who is supposed to be the best-selling NYT author. He should know better.Nearly all throughout, the events that the Tribulation Force endure are thinly-contrived; merely tossed in so as to give them something to do. Jenkins takes too many liberties with plausibility, and almost seems to forget that his readers are not morons. I got highly irritated with his way of "preaching" to the reader. Yes, it's a Christian book. Yes, it's a series about what will happen if you are not saved and ready to meet Christ and yes I expected to see a lot of scripture. But for cheeze's sake, he would take three and four pages to deliver long, winding diatribes from the characters in an effort to rehash scripture that another character had taken four pages to describe in detail. ENOUGH, ALREADY! Why not consider, Jenkins, that part of the appeal of your series is your topic: it might also appeal to those who are already saved and just want to see the good guy finally win in the end! Why not consider shortening the series if you're so desperate for material that you feel the need to fill each book with over-description and preaching, redundancies, and plot events so contrived as to make The DaVinci Code actually believable.Not impressed.

    Carpathia has his enemies where he wants them: massed a Petra, a million strong — within reach of two bombs and a missile no one could survive without a miracle.The Trib Force’s aliases and their Strong tower safe house have been compromised, so Rayford, Buck, and all members have to flee for their lives.Things are coming to a head and more woes are scheduled to be poured out on the inhabitants of the Earth.----------This tenth book in the Left Behind series is just as good as the preceding works. LaHaye and Jenkins keep the tension and action going along with their interpretation of what “end-time” scripture MIGHT be saying.Again, I had a good time reading this story and look forward to the eleventh book when it comes up in my rotation schedule.

    This was actually a good story,with alot of action.I enjoyed reading it.The fact that people actually believe this is going to happen is a little disturbing to me though!I've been approached by enough religious zealots,with their shiny crazed eyes to be disturbed!But it's good fiction and worth reading.

    Starting this review is well, easy to say the least. I started reading the first book in this wonderful series just as soon as I heard about them. Being from a christian home life growing up and as well as my husband and family this was a no brainier. I am going to do one review including the whole series. From the first page of the first book to the last page in the last book, I was not able to put these books down. I grew hunger so to speak for each page. I have always had a great belief in the Bible and in my Faith. This series, although some would call fictional, I believe are very close to what will:To read more of my review: https://breathoflifebookreviews.blogs...

    Anyone who is ten books in to a series should know what to expect and The Remnant holds no surprises. The usual structure is exaggerated in this entry, with the first half following one event, without any tension or enjoyable action, whilst the latter half picks it up a bit. The final quarter is a welcome deviation from the norm, with far less dialogue which frequently feels like filler. If the authors could have used this style across the series, it would have been six books shorter and more enjoyable for it. The Remnant is a vital stepping stone in the series however it offers very little character development and overdoes the sermons somewhat.

    This was my least favorite so far, mainly because it got confusing. Not theologically but all the characters were off on different missions and it was hard to keep track with their aliases and what not. I had to keep going back to see who was who and who was in disguise as what person/name/title, which kind of threw me out of the story. But it is still engrossing and I look forward to the next one.

    I assume as its the tenth book in the series anyone reading this review will know what to expect. This book is more of the same. Its not terrible and has some good action set pieces, but the preaching monologues are literally chapters long and it's the same message over and over. I understand within the context of the book it's always going to be a salvation message, but as a reader these could be shortened. As with all these books after the first couple, a good editor would do wonders.

    All of these "left behind" books are great. They are so interesting that you just want to keep reading.I have read the other 9 as well. Only have 2 left to go, I believe. I really like that the authors do not feel it is necessary to print foul language. They might refer to someone using this type of language but they do not include it in their books. The suspense and twists in this book were great!

    More people die. More people saved. More people make the wrong choice, selfish desires/fear over salvation. Who will survive to Glorious Appearing and see Jesus? How much more evil can Carpathia and his compatriots dish out?

    As the tribulation starts out on their new missions God also has new wreaths to wreak havoc on the remaining world in an attempt to save the last undecided to chose the side of God.Chloe finally gets her chance to be out on a mission and minds herself in serious danger with Hannah and Mac as they search for Sebastian. Only with the help of Go sand the angel Michael are they able to escape unharmed. Unfortunately the same cannot not be said for the Greek co op group and GC touches their home. On the other side of the world Petra is bullet proof... Literally. No matter how many misled and bombs are sent that one not one believer is injured not even in the sky to and from their destinations. The next wreaths start up. Though the boils are the gone the seas have now turned to blood. Food and water are in demand and many are becoming sick with disease. If the GC thinks it can't get any worst...the are wrong. As water is already in short supply, only being extracted from fresh bodies of water.... Even that starts to turn to blood. By while a trade deal of the co op Michael shows Mac that believers are immune to this and the rivers that run blood is actually just waters for Gods chosen people. In this time all the believers in Chicago are forced to leave their home. Chang gets word that GC is coming in hot and heavy with Ned's and 3 days after the final group, the Williams family, evacuates their home, Chicago is destroyed.Carpathia grows irate killing anyone that tries to get in his way. Many,a even those who bear the Beast's mark start to reslise that God is on his way back, and the did in fact chose the wrong side. As many of the tribulation saints meet the holy angles of God they are saved from the most wicked of deaths. In one such even Mac and Albie get a front row set to the death of hundreds of undecided who chose to leave Petra to test Gos and see what carpathia had to offer. Carpathia sends out sloth sayers and abaritions that fool people to beleive he is God. They promise them safety only to kill them before they even have a chance to run. Tison and the others try to reason but some peoples hearts are already too hardened and they will never see the truth. It is explained that God is getting rid of the enemy forces and preparing for a battle on earth that he has already all but won. The waters start to once again turn to water but God is not done yet. He creates Hell on earth and for 17 weeks sets fire to the earth and non-believers are forced to stay in doors during the light hours and can only come out at night. This gives those in hiding a chance to get some of their cabin fever out and let the believers have their time in the sun.One again the judgement is completed and Carpathia finally things he is only even playing Felix with the judites, that is nail all the lights go out. Then anything that has transmitted light either b nature or technology is shut off. This is Gods way of getting believers to safety and he GC can do nothing to stop them.
